On Thursday, November 21st, Bill Heidner, Museum Curator of the Yuma Proving Ground Heritage Center, will present “William Emory, the Most Significant Explorer You Never Knew” at 3:30 p.m. at the Main Library. The founding of the American West was possible largely to a group of Army officers who belonged to the Corps of Topographical Engineers. Among the most influential was Lt. William Emory. Learn more about this great explorer who gave early American pioneers so much knowledge of the Southwest. There is no charge to attend.
The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
